Description

This is an extreme line that cuts through a wild face. It is rarely skied because it's really difficult to have good conditions and it's really hard to navigate once you're inside.

It starts from Punta Parrot and follows the Cavanna Gabbio route for the first part. Then it goes south following the "Via degli Italiani" till it reaches the Ghiacciaio delle Piode.
